Northern Rangers in action against GFC

FRUTA Conquerors U-20 and the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) are both headed to the final of the Turbo Knockout Football tournament next weekend.

Both sides dominated their games against Pouderoyen and Northern Rangers FC, respectively, as the 2019/2020 edition of the tournament continued Sunday evening.

Wayne Baker’s 61st minute strike along with Ryan Hackett’s 80th minute strike solidified what the fans had known from the opening whistle; that Fruta’s youth side was going to make It to the final.

While there were moments of brilliance for the West Demerara side, nothing managed to find the back of their opponent’s nets.

In the second game, it was an absolute route of Northern Rangers by the GFC side.

From the whistle, the GFC went on the prowl and were rewarded in the 13th minute through Kelsey Benjamin.

Adrian Aaron would extend the GFC side’s lead in the 18th minute with a spectacular strike as many thought the game was over.

However, Damien Williams in the 33rd, clawed one back and gave the Northern Rangers supporters hope of a comeback.

Benjamin, however, restored the two-goal margin that GFC had on the stroke of half-time.

GFC would take the scoreline to 3-1 just as the second half resumed with Ralph Parris before the Rangers second goal off the boot of Williams.

The GFC side was determined to make a statement and in the fourth minute of injury time (90+4),  Kevin Baptiste made sure the score line was 5-2.

The final is billed for next Sunday
